Ooh, now this IS exciting: Derek Lam is planning on bringing his mixture of gorgeous minimalism to none other than eBay, following the online giant’s previous collaborations with Norma Kamali and Narciso Rodriguez.
Alongside Lam’s AW ’11 collection, Derek is designing a range of wallet friendly pieces that are going to be sold at a fixed price on the web (so no bidding – yay) after being presented during Fashion Week next February. But here’s the kicker; WE get to decide what does and doesn’t make it to production! After the presentation there’ll be a global vote in which we get to play the part of fashion buyer, deciding on which pieces should actually hit the web in May. Geeeeenius.
Along with this, Lam is reportedly planning on launching another inexpensive diffusion line towards the end of next year, making 2011 very much Lam’s year. As well as our bank account’s. Whoop!
